[top]Tips & Strategies



[top]Roadmap

Playthrough 1 - Male or Female Character in Star Mode Difficulty
Your Main Goals in this playthrough will be:
  • Boot camp - Qualified for Boot camp.
  • Judges’ house - Qualified for the Judges’ house.
  • On air - Qualified for the Live shows.
  • Focused - Rehearse 1 song.
  • Serious - Rehearse 8 songs in the same career.
  • Professional - Rehearse 15 songs in the same career.
  • Brilliant - Answer quiz correctly 3 times in the same career.
  • Omniscient - Answer quiz correctly 8 times in the same career.
  • Real star - Win the competition in Star mode.
  • Bronze disc - Get a minimum score of 6 000 points.
  • Silver disc - Get a minimum score of 10 000 points.
  • Gold disc - Get a minimum score of 15 000 points.

On your first playthrough you will come across most of the trophies already, simply by completing some easy stuff. I suggest you rehearse 15 songs in the same career on your first playthrough, so you get familiar with the songs and you will perform better in the next playthroughs when you need it. You will probably get the trophy for getting a minimum score of 15 000 points on one of the first songs you sing as it's really easy to score 15 000 points. Be sure to take pay special attention to the quiz questions so you will also get those 2 trophies out of the way.

Playthrough 2 - Male or Female Character (depends on what character you choose in the first Playthrough) in Superstar Mode Difficulty
Your Main Goals in this playthrough will be:
  • Viewers' favourite - Finish a Live show in first place.
  • Star - Finish 3 Live shows in first place during the same career.
  • Superstar - Win the competition in Superstar mode.
  • Piece of cake! - Win the contest without ever being in the final showdown.

On your second playthrough you want to get the trophy where you need to win the contest without ever being in the final showdown out of the way. To avoid getting in the final showdown, you will need to score enough votes and not end up in the last 2 places in 1 of the Live shows. Doing this trophy on Superstar Difficulty shouldn't make it any harder, because if something goes wrong you can always quit to the XMB and start the game back up again. You should also try to finish 3 Live shows in first place during this career which means that you need to get the highest voting percentage at the end of a Live show thrice. There are 8 Live shows and you only need to finish in first place thrice, so that shouldn't be too hard.

Playthrough 3 - Male or Female Character (depends on what character you choose in the first Playthrough) in Star Mode Difficulty
Your Main Goals in this playthrough will be:
  • Narrow escape - Escape a final showdown.
  • Guardian angel - Win the contest after being in the final showdown at each stage.

On your third playthrough you want to get the trophy where you need to win the contest after being in the final showdown at each stage. The best way to do this is not singing the song(s) but just let them expire. This will lead you into the final showdown every Live show. When you are in the final showdown, you need to sing as best as possible, so the judges decide you are through to the next Live show.

Playthrough 4 - Male or Female Character (depends on what character you choose in the third Playthrough) in Superstar Mode Difficulty
Your Main Goals in this playthrough will be:
  • Grand slam - Unlock all game tracks and customisation items.

If you complete your fourth playthrough you will get the trophy for unlocking all game tracks and customistation items. You will now have all game tracks and customisation items unlocked, which are needed for some of the trophies below.

Unrelated Career (Remaining) Trophies
Your Main Goals in this playthrough will be:
  • Solo - Perform 1 song in Solo mode.
  • Duo - Perform 1 song in Duo mode.
  • Battle - Perform 1 song in Battle mode.
  • Competition - Complete 1 Competition.
  • Jack-of-all-trades - Perform all the songs in Solo mode.
  • Harmony - Perform all the songs in Duet mode.
  • Fashion victim - Wear all customisation items.
  • Warm-up artist - Sing 100 songs.

Some easy and some annoying trophies here. The perform 1 song and complete 1 competition trophies can be done really quick in the Party mode but the trophies for perfoming all the songs in Solo & Duet mode are gonna be annoying as well as the wear all customisation items trophy. Another thing is that these 3 trophies are glitched as well! You will need to perform all 28 songs in Solo mode in a row, without quitting the game, as well as for perform all 28 songs in Duet mode trophy. If you quit the game to take a break, or your PS3 freezes, you will have to start again. You will need to wear all customisation items in 1 sitting as well. You don't have to worry about the sing 100 songs trophy though, as that will come will come eventually during this step.

Platinum Trophy
Your Main Goals in this playthrough will be:
  • The X Factor - Complete all the other trophies.

Congratulations! You have earned all trophies in The X Factor. Enjoy another Platinum Trophy on your Trophy List.

Boot camp
Qualified for Boot camp.

From the Main Menu, go to Career mode and start a New career. You will get the option to select a difficulty level but since this is your first playthrough you can only choose the Star Difficulty. After you have selected the Star Difficulty you will need to choose your own character. Either choose a Female or Male character to continue and pick out a character you want to play with. You can choose 5 different characters for the Female gender, called Jun, Alice, Nicole Jamila and Cassie and you can choose 4 different characters for the Male gender, called Leon, Charlie, Terrence and Kyle. After you have chosen a character to play with you will get the option to Customize your character by pressing . You can change his/her hairstyle and clothes. Accept the changes and press to continue. You will get the message: “Warning! Is this the character you want to turn into a star?”. Press to confirm and to cancel and an introduction cutscene will start. The auditions will now start. You need to convice the judges that you belong to the top. You will get the option to pick out any song and if you do your best you will qualify for the Boot camp and the trophy will unlock.

[top]
Judges’ house
Qualified for the Judges’ house.

You need to pass all 3 Boot camp rounds in order to get to the Judges' house. In the first 2 rounds you will be given a selection of 10 songs you are allowed to sing and in the third round you won't have the opportunity to choose out of a selection of songs at all, the game will choose a song for you. You won't have to sing the entire song these rounds, you will only have to sing a small part of the song. If you pass all 3 rounds and qualify for the Judges' house, the trophy will unlock.

[top]
On air
Qualified for the Live shows.

You need to pass the Judges' house round in order to get to the Live shows. There is only 1 round here, so you only have to sing 1 song. The difference with other rounds here is that you will need to sing the entire song, instead of just a small part of the song. You will have the opportunity to choose out of all songs again, so try to pick a song you think you feel comfortable with. If the judges decide you are qualified for the Live shows, the trophy will unlock.

[top]
Focused
Rehearse 1 song.


You need to rehearse 1 song in Career Mode to unlock this trophy. You can only rehearse the song(s) you are gonna sing in your next performance. To rehearse songs, go to the door with the headphones icon on it from your Dressing Room.

Professional
Rehearse 15 songs in the same career.

You need to rehearse 15 songs in Career Mode to unlock this trophy. You can only rehearse the song(s) you are gonna sing in your next performance. To rehearse songs, go to the door with the headphones icon on it from your Dressing Room. You can only rehearse a particular song twice, so you will need to sing different songs. However, you will need to sing plenty of different songs throughout the whole Career mode, so it shouldn't be a problem at all to rehearse 15 songs. There is no minimum points limit to let the rehearse count forward to this trophy, so you can just let the songs expire instead of actually singing the them. Be sure to rehearse the 15 songs in just 1 Career!

[top]
Viewers' favourite
Finish a Live show in first place.

[top]
Star
Finish 3 Live shows in first place during the same career.

You need to finish 3 Live show in first place to unlock this trophy, which means that you need to get the highest voting percentage at the end of a Live show thrice. Since there are 8 Live shows, you will have plenty of opportunity to finish 3 Live shows in first place. This isn't too hard if you keep singing the songs you are good at, so I would definitely suggest to choose songs you feel comfortable with. You can check how many times you finished in first place in the Dressing Room, just go to the Television and you will see all your previous results. Be sure to finish 3 Live shows in first place in just 1 Career!

[top]
Narrow escape

Be sure to pay attention at those things, so you can answer the questions correctly. You will get more than enough question each career so this trophy shouldn't be any problem at all. The questions also only have 2 answers, so you have 50% chance you answer correctly. Answer 8 of them correctly to unlock this trophy. Be sure to answer the quiz questions correctly 8 times in just 1 Career!

You need to wear all customisation items to unlock this trophy. To unlock all customisation items (Hair Styles & Clothes for Female & Male characters) you need to complete all 4 Career mode playthroughs (Male on Star & Superstar Difficulty and Female on Star & Superstar Difficulty). If you have unlocked all customisation items, go from the Main Menu to Party mode and select either Solo, Duet or Battle mode. Now instead of start singing a song, you are gonna customize your character with all possible items. Press to customize your character and either start with the Male or Female character (Female has more stuff, so will take longer to complete), it doesn't matter what Male or Female character you pick. When you get on the page with the basic information about the character, press again to customize him/her. You will need to wear every customisation, every hair style and clothes item. Select 3 new items every time, so things go a bit faster. You also need wear every color of every item! Some items have different colors you can use, they always have 3 different colors, so you will need to wear all 3 different colors. Press on every item (Hair Style & Clothes) to select them. Once you are ready, press to get back to the page with the basic information about the character and press to confirm your new outfit. You will get back to the song selection page and you can restart the progress. You do not have to sing a song in the outfit! This trophy is glitched! You will need to wear all customisation items in a row, without quitting the game. If you quit the game to take a break, or your PS3 freezes, you will have to start again.

Another great tip from antoniosbandana:
While wearing all Customsation Items, I didn't have to back out each time, I just cycled through each item for the guy, hitting and as necessary, until I'd worn them all, then I backed out and did the same thing for the girl. This saved me lots of time I think.

Grand slam
